The British actor enjoys hunting for good deals using the online service and insists he buys “everything” through private sales on Craigslist.
The actor’s last purchase was a car, which he bought from a man in Chino Hills, California, and the Twilight star reveals the seller wasn’t too happy with his ruthless negotiating tactics.
He tells U.S. TV host Jimmy Kimmel, “I buy everything off Craigslist. Everything… There was this guy in Chino Hills… like every car I’ve bought (has been through Craiglist). It was this guy who lived with his parents… We were talking about gas prices. He didn’t really understand the concept of negotiating. Because on Craiglist you kind of say ‘Can I get like 300 bucks off’. The thing (car) was only $2,500. I’m like really cheap.”
